Irene has been downgraded to tropical storm status, according to the National Weather Service.
A tornado watch that was issued earlier for Connecticut has also been cancelled, according to WTNH News 8.
As of 10 a.m. Sunday, the storm continued to bring heavy rain and fast winds, so emergency crews still urged people to stay safe and keep off of roads.
As of that time, the winds were coming in at about 40 to 50 mph, which is less than the 75 mph to be considered a hurricane, according to the National Weather Service. However, WTNH meterologists say trees can still topple at winds of 40 mph when the groun is this saturated.
We will keep you posted.
